movie starring Jet Li
and Michelle Yeoh
among others. Jet
Li and Siu-hou Chin
plays Junbao and Tianbao, two shaolin
who get thrown out of the
temple after Tianbao has the nerve to argue with the master. Out in
world, Junbao starts working at an inn while Tianbao is quickly
seduced by the
dark side of the force and joins the military. Eventually,
as Tianbao is becoming more and more ruthless and Junbao is
discovering the secrets of Tai Chi in taosim
, they are forced to
fight each other.
In my opinion, this is a great movie; a lot of laughs, a bit of
passion and revenge, some cool Tai Chi and truly amazing fight
scenes. The quality of the stunts and wire work is really good. I do
not hesitate to compare it to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; this
one is just as good and a lot funnier.
Tai Chi Master was directed by Yuen Woo Ping and has also been
released under the
names Tai-Chi and Twin Warriors.
To confuse things further, Yuen Woo Ping has also directed another
film (Xiao tai ji, or Drunken Tai Chi) that was
released under the name Tai Chi Master on video.
